Mediamatic is one of my favourite things. If I lived in the Netherlands, I would be there every day, and go to every event.
In September it is hosting The Chromatic Dinner:
We are all familiar with how food tastes in our mouths, but can we also experience food through a different sense? Can you feel the sound of water, the smell of metal, the taste of fire or the texture of earth? Artist Martin Butler and vegan chef Alexander Gershberg present a wholesome and harmonious eating experience. Inspired by the Chinese five elements, each course is designed in a different color. Interested in the way in which color, smell, texture, sound and taste are mixed together? Join us for this fully immersive second edition of Mediamatic’s Neo-Futurist Dinners.
Under “practicalities” it is noted that “All Neo-Futurist Dinners are vegan.”
This seems like a good, general, rule.
My route into Mediamatic was via the content management system that undergirds its digital manifestation; this was also the CMS that ran the reboot website back in the 1960s, and I’ve always found it intriguing (I should probably update my profile).
